Fundamental Feminism: Contesting the Core Concepts of Feminist Theory

Grant, Judith

 This exciting book serves two important purposes: First, it is a review of the core concepts of feminist theory that have grown out of the several waves of the feminist movement. These are "woman," "experience," and "personal politics." Second, Grant calls for a major revision of these core concepts which are structuring, and in that sense limiting, current feminist thought. In the second half of the book she initiates the revision with chapters on feminism and epistemology, feminism and postmodernism, and a final chapter entitled "Solutions: A Basic Outline of the Issues and Some Suggestions." At base she argues that the cause of feminism is not well served by the core feminist concepts, therefore criticisms and change are necessary if feminist goals and needs are to be met. This book is important for EHEers because the outcome of a revised feminism could have far-reaching effects on the role EHEs play in women’s lives.
